Any news on whether Damien's gonna be performing at this year's Witnness, now called Oxegen??

I distinctly remember him promising at it last year to come back and play it this year as well!

It's Witnness, with two n's

And it's Oxegen, with an 'e', not a 'y'

Now, you were saying?

I'd just like to point out that Mario may not have known that both these titles are spelt differently, what with him being from the U.S. and everything. I don't believe it was "amazingly ignorant" what he did and i hardly think he was being smart. I'd say he was merely correcting what he presumed were outrageous mispellings.

he will, he does have a new album to tour, anyway... it would be fairly devestating to his irish fans if he didn't play the one weekend festival we do have.

Plus he did pretty well last time

Outrageous mispellings? In a world filled with text-speak and abbreviations, I would NOT consider them to be "outrageous" mispellings!

And what if I was dyslexic? Don't you think I'd just be purely insulted by someone reminding me that I was dyslexic by correcting my spellings?

This leads me to my main point - he didn't have to correct the spellings. It wasn't any of his business that I had mispelt some words. Do you really think he felt the need to correct the spellings of some stranger?

He wasn't even interested in what I was asking!

He replied, choosing to blatantly ignore what I was saying in my post, and this he did by changing the subject completely to something totally different and insignificant.

By totally changing the subject, he was being ignorant & disrespectful towards me.

By totally ignoring the point of my post, and instead making a point of insignificant mistakes I had made, he was being insulting.

He wasn't correcting my spelling. He was being insulting, pure & simple.Edited by: eskimo_friendly

Right-yo...uhm...moving on...Damo's doing a festival in the U.S...so would that raise or lower the odds of him doing Witnness this year.


Oxegen is such a weeeiiird name.

oh my god. what a ridiculous topic. its one of those things that should be 'yes he's playing oxegen' or 'no unfortunatly he wont this year' or oh lord i cant believe its oyegen now. but for gods sake he was only correcting a spelling mistake. RELAX! i sincerely doubt he was trying to insult you.

First of all, it was me who started this topic. I didn't change the subject, someone else did, and I found it very insulting, because they were totally ignoring me and then, needlessly, telling me I was wrong, which I found very ignorant.

Weatherman, what "will be all", exactly?

And finally, I am allowed defend myself against someone I found rude and disrespectful towards what I was trying to say & ask, and so I did.

How many people spell things incorrectly on these boards in order to abbreviate, or just out of pure carelessness, and don't have someone correcting them??? A countless amount. So for him to single me out and ignore me at the same time was quite insulting. Does he go around correcting EVERYONE'S spelling mistakes? I doubt it.

Unless anyone wants an argument, I'm not getting into one.

Oh, and "Ridiculous topic"? Thanx, Aisling.

For GODS SAKES PEOPLE! I heard that he may probably will do Oxegen this year, but(and I hope I'm not the only one here) I pray that he plugs the new album like crazy becauuse having seen the man9 times I think I've heard just about every song,b side and cover he has to offer. Don't get me wrong, I love it all, but the people who saw him at Witnness last year for the first time will just think he's a one trick pony if he does nigh on the same set again.


Am I alone here?

oh dear..


I dunno if Damo will be doing Glasto this year, didn't he say something about doing small festivals that are just about the music, arn't sponsored and arn't commercial.

Ireland's too far away from me!

eskimo_friendly i accept what you have said. i admire the rational way in which you made your points. i'm not here to argue with you. while i accept what you say, i stand by what i've said. i am sorry if i have caused you any distress.

"will be all" = that was all i was going to say on the subject.

anyway, back to more pressing matters.... puppies![img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img]
